Make the most of Summer with Control4 Home Automation

Let’s face it, we have spent enough time inside! It is time to get outside and enjoy the increasingly beautiful weather. With Control4 you are able to create a seamlessly perfect transition from an automated home inside to an automated outside, so you don’t have to skip a beat.

Most don’t think about it but your outdoor space has a lot of customisable automation options that can drastically improve your home.

Here are some of the ways you can automate your home for Summer

Climate Control

The Summer weather can be beautiful, but it can also be brutal, especially at night when trying to sleep. Having a smart climate controlled home can enhance your Summer. If you are spending the day out and about and don’t want to come home to a hot house, you can have your air conditioning kick in while you are on the way home so that you arrive to a perfectly cooled home. The system can also sense the outside temperature and adjust accordingly. Having a climate controlled home is essential to have a comfortable Summer.

Outdoor Audio

Take the part from inside the home to outside with premium outdoor speakers. Weatherproof speakers will have you chilling outside to your favourite tunes all whilst seamlessly fitting in with your current landscape. They deliver immersive sound enhancing your gardening, BBQ’s or sunbathing. Create the perfect outdoor ambience just as you have been doing for your indoor space.

Light It Up

The BBQs don’t have to end when the sun goes down. With superior outdoor lighting that is customised to enhance and compliment your outdoor space keeping pathways safe and the ambience on point. You can use sensors to ensure energy is saved and after with options to change the tone and colour you can easily create the perfect theme. Once the party ends it can all be shut off with the push of a button.


Ok, being outside is fun and all but when the footy is going you know that inside is the place to be…but not if you have an outdoor TV. With a weatherproof and glare-free TV you’ll be able to enjoy movie nights or Sunday football in the beautiful Summer weather. Control4 systems can be installed to include automated temperature control so that your units will adjust to the temperature outside. If you have never watched a movie under the stars, then this is definitely a home addition to consider.

Network and Connectivity

Working from home in the Summer doesn’t mean you have to miss out on sunbathing. With a Control4 home network system you can expand your office space to the outdoors meaning you won’t need an outdoor ZOOM background anymore, you can actually be outdoors. This is also helpful for using mobile devises or tablets outdoors as well. You don’t have to worry about whether your wifi will connect outside anymore.

Don’t miss out on the outdoors this Summer take the best elements of your smart home and expand them into your backyard so you can enjoy the sun and your home.
